Pickle Juice as remedy for Cramps

  • I’ve always lived an active physical life. “Getting physical” is crucial to my wellbeing. I played organized tackle football from the age of 9 till the end on high school. In high school  I had a problem with cramps, no big deal, they just would come sometimes and toward the end of the game. I found out that the Gatoraid they’d give us gave me cramps, so I drank watered down Coke with ice (this was the 1970-73). Once I got out of high school, I took up weight lifting, it filled the “violence” that was lost after I left football playing behind. When I did weights I would sometimes later get cramps at home when I would shower or at night in bed. . I’d get cramps in my hands, lats, bicep, rear thigh. No big deal, I dealt with it by walking it off, stretching it, shaking it, or massaging .

    About 15 years ago I got a house of some acreage and started doing clearing work, cutting, lifting, dragging and burning trees, digging ditches, and sweating like a dog. That has become my physical activity now that I'm in my 60's. It’s in the 90’s and humid here most of the year. When I would come in I’d get cramps and my wife would give me magnesium powder in water and within 15 minutes the cramps would be gone for the day. She would always tell me I needed to drink more water, and most of the time I would say to her that I had drank lots of water.  The problem with the magnesium is that if I drink too little it does not do the job, and if you drink too much it gives me diarrhea.

    Then I remembered that about 15 years ago I had read that college football players drank pickle juice whenever they would get cramps. I tried it and it was amazing, within 3 minutes the cramps were gone and didn’t come back. I tried Bragg Apple Cider vinegar, but it did not work as well . Maybe it is all the salt in pickle juice that makes the difference? Anyhow, I’m not too sure about pickle juice being all that safe to drink,  so I came here to CI to see what other people recommend.

  • Here's my go-to "natural remedy" site.  https://earthclinic.com/ailments/muscle-cramp-natural-remedies/

    For muscle cramps, they say you need potassium, magnesium and sodium.  I'd say pickle juice has 2 of those 3 (not sure if it has magnesium).  The site is great because people can post what works for them and add new remedies.  Other recommendations are apple cider vinegar, black strap molasses, magnesium oil, or good sea salt.

  • Look at the ingredients for pickle juice.  Most major brands have tons of yellow 40 --Claussen Pickles are more natural

  • My husband and I are senior citizens. We have discovered that taking magnesium malate, pygnogenol, and gota kola together before bed helps us get a good night sleep. If we forget, then we wake up with horrible cramps in our ankles, feet, and legs.
    Lord have mercy.

  • Have you looked into using CBD at all? This is the brand I have used to successfully treat my old aches and pains in my feet,  legs and hips. No more cramps since then and I've only taken a dropper or two under the tongue like 4 or 5 times since then. It works for me. Looks like they stopped making my flavor, which was 1500mg of lemon flavor - Mmmm.

    It took me less than a week after I started taking it to confirm it was working. If it does the trick for you, not sure how long it might take before you'd notice, but heck man, almost ANYTHING has got to be better than drinking pickle brine lol.

    A few years back, I tried organic hemp seeds and found that I have an allergic reaction to them. No CBD for me.


    Stubborn,

    This expensive brand of CBD does not say that it is organic. As a result, there could be pesticides, herbicides, and fungicides present in it. Why pay premium bucks for contaminated CBD? In addition, the presence of artificial flavors could be another source of contamination. Some artificial flavors are derived from petroleum as are many drugs.

    Is it any wonder that Rockefeller and other Big Pharma drug pushers gained their wealth through the oil business? Big pharma now wants to take out a patent on GMO-CBO and forbid natural or organic CBD.  The bribed FDA appears favorable to Big Pharma's demands. Follow the money trail. Greed prevails.

    From the link:
    Ingredients:
    Hemp seed Oil ,CBD isolate , Natural Flavoring. (They also have lab test results in PDF format attached).

    Works for me, most are not  allergic to it. Yes, very expensive, but still better to try this before drinking pickle juice - in my opinion. Also worth at least looking into, imo.



    Side effects of drinking pickle juice
    Despite the many claimed benefits and uses, pickle juice is definitely not for everyone.
    Here are some factors to consider before adding it to your routine:
    • Acidity: Due to the acidity, it may cause issues for those with a history of gout.
    • High sodium: Too much salt can lead to water retention, swelling and bloating.
    • Higher blood pressure: When you retain water from eating large amounts of salt, your blood pressure may increase.
    • Indigestion: Too much pickle juice can lead to gas, stomach pain and diarrhea.
    • Cramping: Some doctors worry that drinking pickle juice may actually cause electrolyte imbalances and worsen cramping. However, studies do not support this
